All About Swing

Fun Swing Dance Events For All

Wartime in the Cotswolds



This is an outside event not run by All About Swing but one which we have attended for the last couple of years helping out with the dancing for them. Always a fun day out if you want to come.

Come and visit 2018’s nostalgic 1940s weekend at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway. Transport yourself back to September 1940 and imagine you are waiting for a train at a small station on the Great Western Railway. Children are being evacuated to the coast, soldiers are going back to barracks, and aircrew are heading off to airfields in the South and West. “Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile.” 

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the weekend in British 1940’s period dress, either military or civilian.
